The Columbus Big Give is a 24-hour time of giving to local non-profits. All locally-based non-profit organizations with a current 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status are eligible to participate in the Big Give.

Because of our Columbus area community, in 2019 we were able to raise $62,000 for 30 nonprofits and their projects in our community.

What is the Big Give?


Columbus Big Give is a week-long time of giving where Columbus area supporters are invited to give back to their favorite local charities and help them earn valuable matching funds.
The goal of this community-wide giving event is to match Columbus area supporters’ passions and generosity with local nonprofit organizations already doing great work. Through the combined participation of all people who love and care about the Columbus area, we can significantly impact the future of our beloved community.

Columbus Big Give will run and non-profit organizations will collect donations from 12 a.m. May 3 through midnight May 10 2019. All donations collected will be used locally by the non-profits.
